Duke Cunningham, give up your pension sign now

On November 28, 2005, you admitted to taking over $2.4 million in bribes from defense contractors in exchange for steering government work to them. Among the bribes you admitted to taking were Persian rugs, a used Rolls-Royce, antique furniture, Persian rugs, jewelry, and a contribution to your daughter's graduation party. You also sold your house to a defense contractor at an inflated price and used some of that money to buy a new house. You also admitted to underpaying your taxes from 2001 to 2005.

And yet, if reports are true you are still eligible for a government pension because of your 21 years in the Navy and 14-plus years in Congress. This is unacceptable. First, you have admitted to some very serious crimes--crimes which involve an attack on the integrity of the democratic process. Second, many companies are slashing pensions to cut costs. Honest workers may end up out in the cold when they retire, yet you may end up living the high life even after back taxes.

It is very possible that you could lose a good chunk of your pension to lawsuits. But if you are truly sorry for your behavior, the only proper pennance is to voluntarily give up at least your congressional pension.
